2nd year project Defunct – best second year project at the Gotland Game Conference – earned its creators 25 000kr, a legal start package and counseling from Fondia, together with the coveted Game of The Year award. The jury’s motivation read:

From the onset, this game presents itself as a complete package and it executes expertly across the board to deliver a richly satisfying and ready for retail experience. It’s ambitious, colourful and a heck of a lot of fun to play.
